Sounds like your imaging drum is getting old and in in need of replacement, is your machine a laser printer? seems to me most imaging drums are about a hundred bucks, and they have a finite lifespan. other indications are fading and dirty print / copy jobs. Run a copy, see if the line appears there too. I recommend you replace the imaging drum, if its older printer/copier and is in fact a laser machine with toner, not inkjet

Black vertical line when copying a book page.no light leaks.


If it is along the edge of the print, it may be the edge of the book page you are seeing. if it is going through the text of the page, your scan carriage is likely skipping. If you don't see this on copies of single sheets of paper laid on the glass, then the weight of the book may be deforming the glass enough to catch the scan carriage as it passes. If you see it on single copied sheets, there is probably something on one of the scan rails under the glass that the carriage is "hopping" over as it passes. You could try watching the scan carriage move while holding the lid open to see if the carriage "hops" once during a scan.

My printer has started printing a black line down the edge of the paper?


Remove the laser print cartridge, shake it lightly, and place it back into your printer. That should solve the problem.

Alignment off


Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If that doesn't help, please try this approach:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark 2600 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Align to fix blurry edges. Your printer will then print a page and aligning your print cartridges. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

The screen says the Paten glass needs to be cleaned. What is the paten glass? Also when copies are made a black line is showing up on the edge of the copy.


Hi,
platen glass means that you need to clean the copy glass - glass where you put the originals for copying.
If you have an auto document cleaner there is also small glass on left side of "platen glass" wich is seen when you open the copy machine cover or dadf.

The black line is probably from dirt on copy glass, I pressume because courectour liquid ( most common ). use some stronger detergent or wd-40 to disolve the dirt and clean with glass detergent and dry it.

If you still have the black line try to print something from machine.If you do not have it on print its the copy glass problem - clean it - again.

Pls.rate

Documents are printing fine but the right hand edge has black dots on it like 6-8 sapced out along the right hand edge.


check your print cartridge and your fusing element. you will need to dead cycle the printer to check the cartridge (print a document, when it is half way through turn off the printer, check the toner cartridge for your dots.) are you able to see your fusing element by opening the rear door? check the edges for dots on the fusing element. also there is a transfer roller or belt in your printer, that may also be dirty.

The small glass surface at the top of the scanner bed had some gunk on it. I scrapped it off and the line went away! Yay!

Thin black line on Xerox 4011 laser printer


Does the same thing occur with a different document.. Because it is not repetative, it leads me to believe the line is being drawn at the direction of the software. Try printing a test page, and see if the line appears. If not the issue is from within the word processsing software. It almost sounds like a legal template for a pleading..

My Sharp Copier AR-5320 print black and white horizontal parallel lines on the documents.


Check for scratches on the drum surface. If you have ran a lot of copies on there, its a good time to get it serviced. It could be the cleaning blade on the drum as well.

Lines along edge of paper


1 of 3 things I can think of off top of my head.
Since they are straight, I would suspect the transfer unit.
If it were just one color it would be that imaging unit.
Unlikely the fuser.
It doesn't sound line an issue called bar coding ,where the machine prints random lines. That would be a software issue.
Take the transfer unit out and inspect it for the marks.
I am assuming the streaks are on all colors correct?
If it isn't on the transfer belt, and on all colors check the fuser and see if its latched.
